  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Fragrantly perfumed, but with deeper aspects, the nose conveyed toffee popcorn, puff candy, beeswax, hob-nobs and vanilla ice-cream; also peach and mango, hessian and salty dry-roasted nuts. We agreed the palate was mouth-coating, viscous and rich, with pineapple, heady floral sweetness, like parma violets and heather honey. With a drop of water the nose found apple granny cake (including caramel and pastry), pineapple chunks, scented candles and distant incense smoke. The palate still balanced the fruity and the perfumed (clean laundry, soapy bubbles) against deeper resonances (tobacco, ginger, euthymol toothpaste). Charming layers from the distillery named after the county town.

    Drinking tip: Anytime whisky – but go easy on the water.

    Colour: gold nugget in a miner’s grubby hand
